Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Policy

Our Commitment

Nanny & Child is dedicated to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in our workforce. We aim to eliminate unlawful discrimination and ensure our team represents all sections of society and our clients.

Workforce Representation

We strive for a workforce that reflects society’s diversity. Every employee should feel respected and able to perform at their best.


We commit to providing goods, services, and facilities without unlawful discrimination against customers or the public.

Policy Purpose

Our policy aims to:

  • Ensure equality, fairness, and respect for all employees, whether temporary, part-time, or full-time.
  • Comply with the Equality Act 2010, protecting characteristics such as age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.
  • Oppose all forms of unlawful discrimination in pay, benefits, employment terms, grievances, discipline, dismissal, redundancy, parental leave, flexible working requests, and selection for employment, promotion, training, or development opportunities.

Organisational Commitments

We pledge to:

  • Promote equality, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.
  • Create an environment free from bullying, harassment, victimisation, and unlawful discrimination.
  • Recognise and value individual differences and contributions.
  • Train managers and employees on their rights and responsibilities under this policy.
  • Ensure staff conduct themselves to support equal opportunities and prevent discrimination.

Responsibilities and Accountability

All staff must understand they can be held liable for acts of bullying, harassment, victimisation, and unlawful discrimination against employees, customers, suppliers, and the public.

Handling Complaints

We take complaints of bullying, harassment, victimisation, and unlawful discrimination seriously. Such acts will be addressed through our grievance and disciplinary procedures. Serious complaints could lead to dismissal without notice. Sexual harassment may also be a criminal matter under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

Training and Development

We provide training and development opportunities to all staff. We encourage employees to reach their full potential, maximising the organisation’s efficiency. Decisions about staff are based on merit, except for necessary exemptions under the Equality Act.

Reviewing Practices

We review employment practices and procedures to ensure fairness. We update them to comply with changes in the law.

Monitoring and Assessment

We monitor the workforce’s composition, including age, sex, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religion, and disability. This helps us encourage equality, diversity, and inclusion and meet our policy’s aims. We assess the effectiveness of our policy and action plan annually, addressing any issues that arise.

Management Support

The equality, diversity, and inclusion policy is fully supported by senior management.
